This offering is for an antique Mid 19th Century Trip Around The World Quilt. 72" by 80", it's entirely hand sewn and quilted and a fabric lovers dream. The pattern is Trip Around the World with the squares set on end to appear as diamonds within a beautiful green calico border. The fabrics include tons of browns, greens and blues and the condition is quite simply outstanding. Other than a couple of very small pencil eraser size light stains I found no other flaws.
The backing is a floral print in reds, browns and blues in three pieces and in spectacular undamaged condition. The quilt is thin with an early thin combed cotton batting and it features very nice straight line quilting with app. 7 to 9 stitches per inch. The quilt is remarkably quilt and the condition is wonderful.
The quilt displays wonderfully with a bold graphic design that really pops and will be sure to please. If additional photo's are needed or you have need of answers to questions we do not address we will be happy to supply them. WE USUALLY SEND OUR INVOICE WITHIN 1 HOUR OF THE AUCTIONS ENDING.
